Frédéric François Chopin (22 February or 1 March 1810 – 17 October 1849) was a Polish composer and virtuoso pianist. He isconsidered one of the great masters of Romantic music and has been called "the poet of the piano".

Chopin was born in Żelazowa Wola, a village in the Duchy of Warsaw. His mother was Polish and his father was a Frenchimmigrant to Poland. A renowned child-prodigy pianist and composer, he grew up in Warsaw and completed his musicaleducation there. Following the Russian suppression of the Polish November 1830 Uprising, he settled in Paris as part of theGreat Emigration, and never returned to his homeland. During the remaining 19 years of his life, he gave only about 30 publicperformances, preferring the more intimate atmosphere of the salon; he supported himself financially by sales of hiscompositions and as a piano teacher. From 1837 to 1847 he carried on a relationship with the French writer Amantine Dupin,Baroness Dudevant, who wrote under the male pseudonym George Sand. For most of his life, Chopin suffered from poorhealth; he died in Paris in 1849 at the age of 39.

The vast majority of Chopin's works are for solo piano, though he also wrote two piano concertos, a few chamber pieces andsome songs to Polish texts. His piano writing is often technically demanding, with an emphasis on nuance and expressivedepth. Chopin invented the instrumental ballade and made major innovations to the piano sonata, mazurka, waltz, nocturne,polonaise, étude, impromptu, scherzo and prélude. « hide
